unbelievably, it has been six months since my less that enjoyable series of visits to the dentist. i had to go for a check-up this morning fearing the worst but it turned out rather well. there are no problems and my teeth are better than last time he saw me thanks to the extra flossing and brushing, so i am feeling very virtuous now.

on getting to work i had a load of amazon packages waiting for me. three new books, and the new blur album. some competition for my time on the train for the next few weeks.
